It's a Bot-troll attack take cover!

Recommended Posts

Holy craap there must be 4-5 bot or trolls fishing on both HSO and FM right now. I love how they drag up 6 year old posts without reading the date or the subject and replying to them! :grin:

 

I post this here, because it's darn Entertaining!  :D

page SEO (search engine optimization). They are hoping for back links from this site to boost their organic Google rankings. They are either uninformed SEOers from India who still think that forum links carry any real SEO value (which they no longer do) or they are trying unsuccessfully to build up some forum credibility so they can start dropping links and trying to get us to visit the sites they link to like the one in Leech's deer cart post.

 

Usually these poor English speaking people who do this are paid SEOers who are just trying to boost their client's web hits so it looks like they are doing something, hence earning their fee.

I wasn't seeing the links, that's why it didn't make sense.  Just a handful of random posts.

Well we got the guy on the shroom thread who talks about the same company every time he has posted. Others have posted links to OutDoor equipment sites like the Deer carrier post.

 

 "Some companies like Agrinoon have become the most trusted brand to get the best quality Oyster Mushroom Spawn for Sale."

Some people put links in signatures and sometimes when you sign in for a forum it asks for your w-e-b-s-i-t-e. If you put your w-e-b-s-i-t-e address in that spot and if the forum allows do-follow links, you will add a new back link every time you post on the forum and no one will even see it. These are things that worked better 5 or more years ago but not so much now.

They are more likely though trying to gain forum credibility so that later when they want to answer a question about deer carts with a link, mods would be less likely to delete it because the poster has 10-20 on topic posts. The problem is, the posters don't speak fluent English and they don't know much about the subject so it is usually easy to see through.

    • I’d say it depends on how fast we want results and what the public will tolerate.  I do think a closure during their most vulnerable time is worth serious consideration.  We close the season for other fish for the same reason.  Now we’re realizing the never ending supply of quality panfish does really have an end.   It’s really going to be up to us to understand and accept the facts about how we affect the fisheries.  Getting this information out there and talking with each other is a big help.  I personally know several people who have changed their view on filling the live well or bucket with the most and biggest panfish they can to self imposed limits.  But I also know several people who are still proud as can be to bring home that pile of upper end fish, and worse yet making several repeat trips and bringing others with to do the same.  It’s hard to tell friends what their doing isn’t helpful.   One group of people can substantially fish down smaller lakes in 1-3 years and they’re fine with that.  On to the next lake.  I literally heard that just yesterday.  The limit was dropped on that particular lake to 5 this spring and that has curbed the number of trips they’ve been taking out there.  To me, it doesn’t get to be any clearer than that.   Minky, your practice sounds like what we need to get that 10% group of takers to adopt.
    • Wanderer, any ideas? Would the reduced limit and one over 9 or 10 inches be enough? Should there be a short season closure in the late winter / early spring?  Only catch and release in May and June. I love catching them, eating a few and releasing the rest.
    • here is a new idea to try:  
    • I would have to say that Wanderer is the biggest turkey so he gets my vote. 😀
    • I was out at a local lake last night and found the gills on beds with a few crappies mixed in.  I was learning the lake and planned on keeping moving and targeting bass but couldn’t resist pulling a few pannies in.  As always it was fun but I didn’t keep any and ran into several beds. They were topping out at a solid 8 inches on the board.   As I moved along I could see someone down the line, I thought maybe he was fishing bass also but he didn’t move until I got within about 75 yards.  When I got to the spot he was fishing there was another set of beds but I couldn’t see a fish on them.  Threw my bait in and didn’t get bit.     I’ve been that guy before but I’ve seen that scenario play out too many times to be OK with it anymore.  I know the panfish get hammered all winter and that’s probably putting the biggest hurt on the population but stripping the beds is something we really need to curb IMO.
    • Yes - absolutely thank you to Borch for running this again!   And thanks to everyone who entered!  Having the contest and getting some encouragement helped me get more back in tune to the spring turkey season than I have been lately.  And learn the lesson (again) to not under estimate what’s available and what can happen for anyone.
    • Yes- a cheap go pro knock off. 
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Thanks once again Borch for doing this. 
    • If I could only keep 5 or 10 sunnies this size (around 7 1/2) for the increased chance to catch & release 10+ inch sunnies it would be worth it!
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Shoot Rick a PM to make arrangements for your prize.     Thanks everyone!  It was a challenging but fun season.
